A Changing Society
For the first time in U.S.A. history, most of the nation’s babies are members of minority groups, according to census figures. This signals the dawn of an era in which whites no longer will be the majority. Today, minorities make up 37 percent of the U.S. population.

Winners Keep Moving the Finishing Line
A winner’s focus is both goal-setting and goal-getting, and then moving the finishing line. Consider some companies that at one time were household names who reached their goals but did not move the finishing line—W.T. Grant, Woolworth’s, Zenith, Studebaker, Montgomery Ward. In each case, the goal was the same, but once they achieved their goal they did not move the finishing line. They lost the hunger, the ability to innovate, to adapt to change, to be humble. The greatest danger in ministry and church growth is complacency! Wal-Mart kept moving the finishing line. Sam Walton set the example by meeting the needs of everyday people. The Walton lifestyle is ingrained in
the Wal-Mart culture. Effective leaders and winners keep moving the finishing line (Concepts from Harry MacKay’s newsletter).
